You don’t come to this modest, two-story property for top-end lodging. You come to be just steps away from a lovely, sandy beach with shade from thatched palapas and excellent snorkeling along the reef. You come to swim in the big oceanfront pool, or just sip cocktails at the poolside bar and grill, with the blue seas stretched out on the horizon before you. You pick the Tamarind Reef to take advantage of island-hopping trips offered by day-sail and charter-boat operators at the adjoining Green Cay Marina. And about the rooms: They’re just fine—clean, comfortable, roomy, if done in an uninspired tropical motif. Hey, they even have ocean-facing patios or terraces so you can be reminded of why you picked the Tamarind in the first place.
